The fantastic news is out that Russ and Andrew Carpenter are to return to the strip with the Glacier Grenade dragster with Andrew driving.
Russ is one of the true UK drag racing engineering giants and the performances he got from this car were then and still are incredible today.
Of course Andrew “slim” Carpenter has a huge amount to learn but it will be a real honour and pleasure watching this team out again.
Obliviously a return to racing isn’t cheap so if anyone wishes to support (Nitro etc) one of the greatest pieces of UK drag racing machinery ever built then you can contact Andrew through this website.
Andrew has also kindly promised to keep ukdrn updated of news on the return
The time has come again for me to ask for your kind support for the ukdrn website by purchasing a 2014 calendar.
Not only do you get to keep your favorite nostalgia website running and advert free but you also get a great calendar with all major the 2014 race dates on it.
This year I’m also offering a wall version of the calendar although of course it’s more expensive.
As always postage and shipping is free.
Thanks for your continued support everyone.
To kick off the 40th anniversary year of drag racing at Shakespeare County Raceway with have something extremely rare in the form of a early Long Marston recording.
There isn’t much information about the meeting other than the info held inside the inlay card so if you have anything to add to the topic please do.
